In the front yard we have a large Evergreen tree that takes of half the yard. It's big and dense and it's always dry underneath, even after heavy snow. I have seen a rabbit in the driveway twice since we moved here and always wondered if the tree was it's home.
After the recent snowfall I was given definite proof of our very own snow bunny living in the front yard. No wonder the dogs spend a few extra seconds sniffing the corner of the driveway, I'm sure they knew about the rabbit way before I did.
I would love a better look at our little yard rabbit but the dogs probably keep it pretty skittish. If I was a rabbit, the yard of two dogs may not be my first choice but that big tree is delightful. When I was looking at houses to rent, that tree grabbed my attention as soon as I drove up to the house. I thought it was beautiful. I'm glad to know it gives protection to our yard life.
